Eric Ridley's answer While you should have received a copy of the contract, you were bound once you signed the agreement. You may have other valid reasons for rescinding your purchase. If you think you do, you should speak with an attorney.
Eric Ridley's answer It sounds like you may have bought these coins with the knowledge that they were worth far more than you were paying him for them. If so, he may have a right to sue you for recission of the contract. If you took advantage of him because of your superior knowledge of the coins, you're very likely to be required by a court to unwind the transaction.
Eric Ridley's answer Not much, unfortunately. Derogatory entries will remain for a period of 7 years (10 years for bankruptcies). If there is an error, you can challenge the accuracy of the entry, and the reporting agency has to verify the entry within a short time period, or remove it.
Eric Ridley's answer In general, if the lien was secured by the property, then it is dischargeable to the extent that the property is no longer available. If you like, please call me and I can explain in more detail.
Eric Ridley's answer Do you have a court order terminating the father's parental rights? Even though he has been absent, before you proceed, you should get a court to award you full physical and legal custody. Once you've done so, changing a name is simple and inexpensive, and you can do it without an attorney.
Eric Ridley's answer Are you saying you have no biological relationship to the child? If so, have you been raising the child as part of your family? If that's the case, a court might still order you to pay support. If you never acted in any parental capacity towards the child, and the child is not yours by biology, then probably not.
Eric Ridley's answer Well, in the first place it sounds like you and your spouse have larger issues to work out. That aside, how were you removed from the board without a board meeting and a vote? This should not happen, absent some irregularity.
The question then becomes whether it's worth litigating the issue or not.If you have any relationship remaining with your spouse, litigation will destroy it. You really need to provide more details, or call me to discuss.
Eric Ridley's answer Yes there is. You can pull any bankruptcy records from the PACER system, which is run by the federal government. You will need to register and provide a credit card number, but PACER costs are very inexpensive. http://www.pacer.gov
Eric Ridley's answer It means that one of your creditors is requesting that the Court permit them to continue collecting on your debt to them, in spite of your bankruptcy proceeding. You should immediately check with a bankruptcy attorney for your options.
Eric Ridley's answer Do you mean you've been served with an adversary proceeding, or you are in BK and you think you need to open an adversary proceeding? You should get in touch with a BK lawyer near you.

Eric Ridley's answer Unless you have been served with a complaint by a process server, you are most likely not required to appear anywhere. They are trying to strong-arm you.

If you have been served with a complaint, you need to discuss your situation with an attorney immediately.
Eric Ridley's answer You can file an action in small claims court, if the total amount you believe you lost is less than the maximum permitted in your jurisdiction. However, you must also send the shop a letter first, demanding the return of your vehicle.
